Surveys & Forms
Big Picture Analysis and Decision Making
Chalk & Wire allows you to go deeper than assessment scores. Our forms and surveys tools can gather data on a broad spectrum of activities, which can be used to pinpoint problem areas and create an informed curriculum response.
Create and send questionnaires to external assessors and employers at no additional cost. Deploy surveys that aggregate data on student dispositions and demographics. Use our forms to gather, track and report on any aspect of instructional process. Embed forms to ensure a 100% response rate. Supplement your current course evaluation tools by gathering opinions about the impact of instruction and course quality.
Flexibility and Ease of Use
When creating forms, a wide range of question types are available including type-in-text, ranged choices, response grids, multiple and single choice questions and more. Survey question branching is also supported.
Import Existing Data
Your existing data can also be easily imported for use in reporting.
Reporting & Analytics
Chalk & Wire's reporting tools were developed with institutional research in mind. Our content-neutral reporting is capable of multiple levels of analysis that address the important questions of any discipline.
Generate simple descriptive reports showing mean, median, standard deviation, and distributions (numeric and graphic) of individual assessments. Delve deeper and develop more complex reports, such as correlation and cluster analyses, linear regression, and more.
Point in Time (PIT) Reports
PIT reports are snapshots of student progress as they relate to specific instruments or learning outcomes at that point in time. Aggregate and dis-aggregate this data on a number of levels with our reporting tool.
Progress Over Time (POT) Reports
Combine multiple snapshots to see how students are developing throughout your program. This is also beneficial for comparing multiple cohorts of students before and after curricular changes have been implemented to see if they are having the desired effect. Use our Chi-Square probability calculator to determine significant differences.
Data-Driven Improvement (DDI) Reports
Use demographic variables to perform action research. Discover how and why some student groups respond atypically to your curriculum and compare how achievement in certain learning outcomes predicts performance in others.
Explore and Manage Your Data
Contextual actions allow you to browse your data, drilling up and down through its linkages.
Reports can be saved, exported to various formats, embedded in portfolios and shared with colleagues.
